Is covid a naturally occuring virus?

scientists around the world say it is not.....it is genetically modified in a laboratory.

Update:

WRONG..... there is plenty of scientific evidence that it is....check it out!

Update 2:

its a regular cold virus that has been given gain of function properties IN A LAB!

    We may not be sure yet, but it doesn't look like it.  It appears to be a recombined form of a coronavirus that infects bats.  There are no bats living in Wuhan, and were no bats in the wet market either.  It almost certainly came from the P4 Wuhan Virology Lab, where bat coronaviruses were being studied.  I hadn't heard that a common cold coronavirus was involved, but it could have been.  In terms of being contagious, covid-19 acts more like a cold virus than the previous SARS viruses to which it is closely related.

    There are appx 2,000 coronaviruses in the wild that are similar to SAR-COV-2.

    We as humans have now been exposed to 6.

    Was is modified in a lab and released? Perhaps.

    I wish I had my super power to "know what really happened"

    'viruses' are naturally occurring, yes

    No. There are a lot of evidences that it is not a naturally occuring.

    It was eradicated in 1976.  And is the chartering program for the WHO.  It was because of research done on ethnic children that the WHO was delayed in its implementation.  The protocols used in modern days are based upon this illegal research program.

    The differences between the genome of the virus associated with Covid-19 are diffuse point mutations.  Artificially transgenic viruses would have long sequences altered.  This virus does not, and therefore the scientific consensus is that it is not genetically modified.

    Ok, simply point us to that large amount of evidence. And your cousin Jimmy doesn't count as "evidence" neither does Donald Trump

    "its a regular cold virus that has been given gain of function properties IN A LAB!"

    Now I see, you are an idiot. Seriously? At least put together a sentence that makes sense. I suppose the earth is flat, man didn't land on the moon, there is no "space", gravity doesn't exist, 9/11 was an inside job, contrails are mind control chemicals, and JFK was killed by aliens.

    I say the Deep State Democrats created it..

    It was first identified in the 1930s so it may have been around a lot longer, it may even be as old as life itself. No 'scientists' are saying that its from a lab, only trolls are saying that.

    There is no evidence that it was created.

    COVID-19 myths have spread just about as quickly as the disease itself, but one myth in particular just won't go away: that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, isn't naturally occurring and was actually manmade. In fact, one substantial survey found that almost 30% of Americans believe that this virus came from a lab.But scientists believe that they can confidently say that the virus wasn't created by humans and the myth going around is nothing more than that, a myth. So how do they know with such certainty? The key is in the virus's genetic code. This is the genomic sequence for SARS-CoV-2. - https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-lab-ma...
